Leadership Society

Lewis & Clark thrives today because people with a passionate commitment to education have always stepped forward to lead. Leadership advances what we do and seeds our common future. Donors who contribute at the following levels become members of the Leadership Society:

President’s Circle $25,000+ per year
Dean’s Circle $10,000+ per year
Scholar Circle $5,000+ per year
Charter Circle $1,867+ per year

Members are honored annually by the president of Lewis & Clark and the Board of Trustees. Your leadership gifts guarantee that Lewis & Clark’s benefits to students remain enduring, sustaining, and transforming.

Your invitation to lead

“As a student, alumnus, and member of the Board of Trustees, I have seen first hand how deeply our students and faculty value the critical support you provide that advances their scholarship, fuels their progress, and furthers their opportunities.

I have also seen—and have experienced myself—how a Lewis & Clark education prepares global thinkers and leaders. Now, as president of the Leadership Society, I am privileged to head this initiative that will help all of us enhance the Lewis & Clark experience for current students and students yet to come.

I invite you to join the Leadership Society. When you do, you are setting a new standard for philanthropy that furthers our mission and makes your impact on students personal and lasting: You are directly supporting their uncommon journeys.”

~ D. Mark Dorman ’83
